When we visit a doctor, go to a hospital for surgery or have a medical emergency, we expect that doctors and medical professionals treating us will do so with the required care and skill. Patients expect their medical professionals will exercise a high degree of care and skill. In fact, doctors have a creed that says: “First, do no harm.” But sometimes they do cause harm.
When Georgia medical professionals cause harm, victims have the right to be compensated for the injuries and pain caused by their medical errors. The Georgia Supreme Court has reinforced this with a decision that rules patients cannot be limited in the amount they can recover for their pain and suffering when they are harmed by a medical professional in most circumstances.
Malpractice occurs when a medical professional does not act within what are the recognized standards of care. Injured victims can bring a lawsuit for their injuries and damages for their pain and suffering. Sometimes injuries can be very severe and even cause a patient’s death. It is important to seek legal advice so that victims and their families can begin to recover. Charles Scholle is an Atlanta injury lawyer with the experience and compassion to handle the most complex medical malpractice cases and support victims and their families in medical malpractice litigation.Injuries Caused By Medical Professionals
